    I had to have a number of engineered boards taken up and replaced due to a window leak. They were glued down. I could only find one installer who would even consider doing the work, and it was a...

    It's a ridiculous study. First of all, my home charger was free (long story), but let's say you just wired a NEMA 14-50 outlet, which is what most people do. Typically costs $350, which is what I...

    I did some quick calculations on the energy usage of the AlorAir Sentinel HD55. At my electric rates, running it 24/7 would cost about $40/month. That Storm LGR Extreme would cost $62.51/month. ...

    That's what I use too, but it does leave a liquid film that has to be wiped off. I wish it dried on the surface like Boeshield.

    I saw about as 10% degradation of capacity on my Tesla P85D after 80K miles. I thought that was pretty reasonable. Still had 204 miles on a typical charge.

    We'll see how the new one does. Brand...

    Mine's usually 55-60%. But the mini-splits thermostats are just usually set to 74 or 75 F. I can measure the humidity, but I don't try to control it. It's a losing battle for me too in Florida on...

    Am I just not hearing the noise on my PTE010R, or is my hearing that bad?

    Funny, my 10HP unit is very quiet. It does make one clunking noise after the initial self check when it turns on, but that's it.

    I have both the Jet 2000 and the Jet 1000B in the shop. The downside of the Jet 2000 is that it's quite noisy. I replaced the outer filter on the Jets with MERV 13 filters, and filtering efficiency...

    Jim:

    I see you put two runners on your sled for the miter tracks. I've got two on mine also, but I've read posts with plusses and minuses to two vs one runner.

    Everyone's thoughts?

    Interesting. It would take a very large battery on the truck. A generator, if it produces high enough voltage and current could, I suppose do that. To put this in perspective, hooking up a Tesla...

    Great chart, David. Thanks. That should be very useful for many people.

    So these filters really aren't efficient removing 0.5 micron particles until you get up to MERV 14 or MERV 15? They will...

    OMG!! That's so much better an approach then I've been using. I take out the Lenox gauge with each blade change, and get the blade to the optimum tension (I usually go for 25K).

    Nice tip, John...

    As far as I know, you'd have to be towed. It's pretty funny what the car does as you get really low on charge. It starts giving you less and less subtle warnings, turns off the A/C, reduces maximum...

    It's funny, though. Every doctor I know has an intuitive feel for metric weights in kg. But list a height in cm, and we all reach for our calculators to see how tall that is.

    I did that also a few years ago with my Laguna jointer/planer. It made a HUGE difference. Now you have to paint it the color of the Grizzly so it looks part of the machine(says the OCD woodworker).
